Democrats must pin the global economic collapse... [View all]

...squarely at the feet of "free market" Libertarians (Republicans will suffice) by explaining to Americans an uncomplicated and easy to understand fact about libertarianism: a global economic meltdown is, in fact, a predictable outcome of a global economic libertarian model. This is what libertarians call "markets correcting themselves." And when markets correct in a global libertarian model, people lose their savings, their jobs, and their homes. And when people lose their savings, their jobs, and their homes, the economy remains on the precipice of depression for years. Libertarians naively believed that this function of "free markets" was an inherent good of a model they simply didn't understand and have since abandoned as quickly as they could by blaming the depression on Democrats and President Obama when it was they who, in fact, were the architects of the model.
